What does that even mean, "uncooperative"?
I have a serious problem with law being taken in to the hands of people who do not make the law, and merely enforce and protect it.
I do not believe there is a law stating "if they're uncooperative, make them stand nude in front of the opposite sex". I don't believe that for
Therefore, this action was not allowed by the law.
They're in jail for a reason. I understand that. But you can't simply say they deserve it just because they're criminals, and definitely not if
it's some minor offense.
They are in prison, they are doing their time, and they are out of free society. Thats their punishment. Their punishment is not to be subjected to
nude embarrassment, and no doubt inappropriate sexual comments on the part of the opposite sex cops and prisoners.
If they're being insubordinate, put them back in their cell. If they physically harm another person in the prison, add charges.
But stripping them down and subjecting them to that embarrassment for anything is not only a stupid punishment, but is also not granted by law.
Society has made people feel their most vulnerable or uncomfortable when they are nude in public or in front of others who they do not trust. So
that's used on people to instill fear and encourage subordination of authority.
It's practiced in prisons both foreign and domestic. How long before it's mainstream?
We've even heard of these strip searches on CHILDREN in schools.
It's an intimidation tactic. People in positions of authority are being instructed to perform these acts against people's comfort and vulnerability
to encourage obedient masses.
Prisoners (and "terrorists") are the first because "no one cares" about them. Then it's our children because they're being primed for the future
status quo. It won't be long before it's the rest of us.
It's all conditioning. They inflict this on those who are most vulnerable and least capable of doing something (i.e. children and prisoners), report
it in the media, the public becomes aware of it, eventually it becomes normal, and they simply progress from that, making it worse and worse.
Even if they were some monster and were a mass murderer, or a rapist, or a pedophile or what ever else, the fact remains that it is not allowed by law
to do this to prisoners, no matter how much of a 'monster' they are considered to be.
But it being DUI, that's even worse and even more unjustified. That's just absolutely unnecessary, pathetic and disgusting.
Yeah, they made a mistake in putting others in danger for something so stupid. But to serve their time AND be subjected to unnecessary treatment, and
possibly the perverse judgment of these officers who do not have authority over making law, and simply enforce current law? Completely wrong.
I agree with awarding them damages and bringing criminal charges on these officers.
